Oskaloosa Falls To Washington In Week Two

The Indians had a rough night in Washington falling 62-12 to the Demons.

by Jamie Brockman

It was a tough night, to say the least for Oskaloosa Football, as they were dealt a 62-12 loss at Washington Friday night.

The Indians didn’t help themselves with numerous penalties throughout the game, but there was no question Washington was the more physical, better team on the field. The Demons were more physical up front resulting in numerous big plays and touchdowns on their first eight possessions of the game. Washington racked up over 400 yards in total offense for the second straight week with 196 through the air and 209 on the ground.

Quarterback Luke Turner punished the Indians on both ends with 11 rushes for 131 yards and two touchdowns, while throwing for 202 yards and four touchdowns.

The Indians tallied 268 yards of offense, but only 74 yards came via the ground game. Anytime the Indians seemed to get a little momentum, it was wiped out by a penalty, as they were flagged eight times for 72 yards. Sophomore quarterback Will Schultz completed 12-25 passes for 183 yards, with one interception and two touchdowns and rushed 11 times for 36 yards. Tyler Miller was much more active in week two catching six balls for 84 yards and a touchdown while rushing nine times for 49 yards to lead the team in both categories.

Isaac Schultz caught two passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. Wyatt Krier led the defense with 11 tackles.

Washington scored on their first two possessions on long drives of 81 and 64 yards to take a 15-0 lead.

Late in the first quarter, Schultz broke free for a 62-yard score, but it came back on offsetting personal foul penalties on each team. Osky continued the drive into the second quarter, scoring on a 27-yard pass play from Schultz to Miller finishing a ten-play 72-yard drive.
Schultz appeared to be across the goal line on the two-point try, but officials said no and Osky pulled within 15-6 with 11:14 remaining in the first half. Washington answered quickly with a four-play 64-yard drive to pull ahead 22-6.

Oskaloosa’s ensuing possession was filled with penalties resulting in a punt that led to another Demons score.

Trailing 29-6, Will Schultz connected with his older brother Isaac for a 58-yard touchdown pulling the Indians within 29-12 with 4:30 remaining in the half.

Washington wasn’t done though. The Demons finished off a six-play 55-yard drive extending their lead to 35-12. Following a Schultz interception, Washington struck quick, with a little luck, on a one play
88-yard pass connection for a score.

Oskaloosa tipped the pass in the air, but right into the hands of Ethan Hunt who had a clear field to the end zone and the Demons held a commanding 42-12 halftime lead.

Halftime didn’t slow the Demons and penalties continued to hurt the Indians early in the second half.

After forcing an Osky punt on the opening possession of the second half Washington got a good return into Indians territory. An Osky penalty on the return gave Washington the ball at the Osky 13 yard line. One play later the Demons extended their lead to 49-12 just two minutes into the third quarter. Again the Demons forced an Indians punt, but a bad snap over the head of Will Schultz gave them the ball at the Indians seven-yard line. Again, one play later the Demons added seven more for a 56-12 lead.

In the fourth quarter, Sophomore quarterback Keaton Flaherty got his first varsity action. His first snap resulted in a fumbled handoff that Washington recovered and returned for another score resulting in the 62-12 final score.

Oskaloosa fell to 1-1 on the season and will travel to Fairfield for week three to play their final non-district game.
